DD: As one of the selectors of the exhibition Art in the Age of (Non) emotionality at Danube Dialogues 2015 edition, do you think that the persona of the artist as a source of emotions remains important or crucial in the flow of contemporary art? How do artists come to grips with a depersonalized world that merely pays lip service to individuality? Does the nature of society mean that their work tends to become non-emotional, or perhaps more emotional?
HK: Artists will always remain a seismograph of society with their art works. If artists want to change society, politics and culture, they have to perform their job emotionally, otherwise the risk is very high, not to be heard. Emotionality will always play a big role in our society. Without emotional experience capitalistic systems are not working.
